Well.......

Guess I'll need to go to bed and try to forget about the fact that I may have just BRICKED my 3 day old GS3!


It's been in the flashing 4G LTE screen for oh, 20 minutes now....

CRAP

Before I went to bed, I decided to try the Odin procedure once more. It WORKED!!! I'm now rooted!

Just a side note/comment: I have to say, I must have gotten spoiled when I had my EVO 4G and needed help. The EVO 4G ATR forum is possibly THE busiest of all forums! Oh well, perhaps in time, this one will populate nicely...!

I hear ya! Must be darn few of us who have actually rooted and are interested in moving into more 'tech-y' stuff

I wish I could help you with the switching roms but you are farther down the path than I at this point. All I did is as stated above, and I still have the stock 'look' and all but I am rooted, have the TWRP recovery, AND I unlocked the bootloader just this afternoon! So...

I'm ready to start flashing different roms here soon but I'm kinda tired of seeing the sun shining outside and I'm inside sittin' at the pc!

Have you looked at the ROM section in post #2 here ---> [Guide] Step-by-Step Rooting & Flashing - Android Forums Just be sure to read the OP remarks/instructions and should be good to go...

Well, you already flashed CM10, so you already know how to flash a ROM. Find a different ROM and flash it.

If I just flash a new rom , won't cm10 still be there? I don't have to delete cm10? Or install the backup I made before flashing cyanoginmod?

Flashing overwrites the system that's on there. The typical process in CWM/TWRP is:
1) Make a backup (optional)
2) Factory reset
3) Clear cache
4) Clear dalvik cache
5) Flash ROM
6) Reboot
7) ???
8) Profit

If you like CM10 back it up then wipe data and flash the new ROM, that way if you don't like the new ROM you can just restore the old ROM, or if the new ROM fails and wont boot you at least have the backup you can restore. I generally install a new ROM weekly unless I find one I really like I may keep that for a month or two.

This, except if you do factory/data reset it also clears cache, so go from step 2 to step 4 and skip 3.

There is a sticky that walks you through this, already posted before you asked.
Each custom ROM will also have instructions for flashing it, linked in said sticky.
The answers are here.
